Alone in a Crowd

Elena Gray at the The Observer provides a realistic look of Latinos on campus. Unless they’re attending a college with significant Latino population, most Latinos feel like they’re alone on an island. The experience here can be applied to most organizations as well.  

“Though Notre Dame is one of the most national schools, I feel that the majority of the students on campus still wind up thinking exactly the same. I am not just talking about diversity in the sense of race and ethnicity either, but also diversity in thought and beliefs,” she said. “As a Latina, I at times feel stifled in my classes and can’t help but think there is no way that my voice or what I have to say will change what they think. The problem is, no one else sees it. It is a shared struggle with not only my community, but also other minority communities.”
